"Great teaching style - there's so much to tai chi & qi gong, learning new details & different aspects each week with Josh"
"Really enjoyable class - highly recommend, Josh is a great teacher"
I first joined Josh's sessions with a friend who spoke highly of the classes. I hadn't considered Tai Chi before but wanted an alternative to yoga. Josh is an experienced facilitator: clear, encouraging and motivational. Great classes! Recommend to all!
